    So I’ve heard that if you started watching porn and jacked off to it at a younger age, rebooting usually takes longer. Internet porn became available to me shortly after I started puberty at age 11, and I’ve pretty much been regularly looking at it and jacking off to it up until recently (about 24 years). Anybody have some idea of how long it might take for me to reboot?

    Also, for those who have rebooted, how would you say it changed the way you think about and respond to women? I guess more specifically I’m wondering if rebooting brings your body into sync with your mind. For example, if I see, talk to, get touched by, or smell an attractive woman, I’ll usually become aroused, even if I know she’s not interested in sex (like a platonic, yet attractive lady friend). After a reboot, would my arousal be limited only to ladies I suspect or know are interested in sex?

    A few different times I’ve asked people on the internet if it’s normal to be aroused by hugs from platonic lady friends. Some guys have said it’s normal, but generally it seems like people think it’s weird. My social compass doesn’t work too well, so I don’t know what to believe.

    I'm in the same boat, started at a young age. Ruined high school for me. I have the same question, from what I understand it can vary greatly.

    Oh I feel it. PMO ruined my entire youth, to the point where I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 32.
